What We're Drinking

 

One of the most serious English Sparkling producers. This historic estate has been in the Goring family since 1743. The tiny 16-acre vineyard is close-planted on a steep south-facing chalk escarpment described as 'similar to the Côte des Blancs' in Champagne. The fruit is picked very selectively with quality being the absolute focus. The grapes are pressed gently using a traditional Coquard press. After three years on the lees this wine, composed of 45% Pinot Noir, 33% Chardonnay & 22% Pinot Meunier, is hand disgorged and balanced with a minimal dosage of just 4g/L. It has a fine counterbalance between toasty richness and power from the wines élevage in Burgundian French Oak barrels, with racy acidity, tension and a focused chalky minerality.

New K&L Video Recommendations

Armed with a new video camera and a shotgun microphone, I've been tinkering with some videos featuring the fun-loving K&L staff as of late.  There's something quite nice about being able to visit our stores, talk with our employees, and get good wine advice from an actual person.  Recreating that experience online has been fun with the wine and spirits blogs, which have always focused on written accounts of our favorite K&L products.  However, getting the staff to take a minute to talk about wine on video is much easier than getting them to type up an extra article.  Therefore, look for more testimonials from K&L staff members in the near future.

Today's feature is from Latin wine buyer Joe Manekin and he's super stoked about the new Emilio Hidalgo Marques de Rodil Palo Cortado Sherry.  Take a listen to what he has to say and see if you're as excited by the end of it.
